Reef Tank

Reef TankA reef aquarium or reef tank is an aquarium containing live corals and other animals associated with coral reefs. In recent years, advancements in our knowledge of the reef coupled with more refined reef maintenance techniques have allowed the reef tank to become much more accessible to the hobbyist.[citation needed] These aquarium setups vary from having many fish that vary from clorinating fish and spawning fish, which attempt to recreate life specific to one region of the world like the Great Barrier Reef, to the more prevalent and often spectacularly colored mixed reef that blend hard and soft corals from around the world. Unlike the marine aquarium, the main purpose of which is to house various types of fish, the true stars of the reef tank are the coral and other invertebrates.

Salwater aquarium

Blenny in marine tank saltwater aquarium or marine aquarium is an aquarium that keeps marine plants and animals in a contained environment. Marine aquaria are further subdivided by hobbyists into fish only (FO), fish only with live rock (FOWLR), and reef aquaria. Marine fishkeeping is different from its freshwater counterpart because of the fundamental differences in the constitution of saltwater and the resulting differences in the adaptation of its inhabitants. A stable marine aquarium also requires more equipment than freshwater systems, and the aquarium inhabitants are often more expensive to acquire.
